And we didn't miss any of the glitzy 1970s baggage that the show jettisoned. But over the past three and a half seasons, little bits of schlock have started clinging to the show like so many barnacles. Click through to vote for which one of these moments ruined the show forever.

@B: I'm still watching and mostly enjoying the show, but with a generous amount of head-slapping. About the same as the way I feel about the current Doctor Who series. Except that the new Doctor Who is proud of its shark-jumping. It pauses in mid-air over the shark as if to say, "Look! Show! Shark! Jumping! Isn't it AWESOME?"
